There are so many articles on the Internet on that discuss the best and top Facebook plugins particularly in relation to WordPress. However, not many actually mention Facebook social plugins “which lets you see what your friends have liked, commented on or shared on sites across the Web”. One unique feature of this plugin is that it works with every type of Website with a simple line of HTML which means that you do not have to install a plugin on WordPress, Blogger or any other blog platform for it to work.

Facebook social comes with eight different plugins that will make it easier to connect with friends and share your favourite Websites securely over the Internet. These plugins include the following:

The Like Button which help users to connect to your pages and share content to their friends on Facebook. The Recommendations plugin will show personalised recommendations whether users are logged into your site or not. The Login Button displays profile pictures of friends of your fans in addition to a login button. The Comments Box makes it possible for users to comment on your site’s content. The user can then share the comment on their Facebook wall.

In addition, the Live Stream plugin allows user visiting your site to share activity and comments in real time. It is very useful when broadcasting events or playing multi-player games. The Facepile plugin show profile pictures of the user’s friends who have signed up for your site. It does not work in situations when the user is logged out of Facebook or does not have friends who have signed up for your site using Facebook. The Like Box enables Facebook page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. It enables users to like a page which their friends likes without visiting the page and read recent posts.

VERDICT

Rather than installing various Facebook plugins that may require further fine-tuning via css or otherwise, the social plugins make it easier to take control of your Web page and determine where you want it to feature. The ability to function on any Website is also a plus.

Talking Point

What are the benefits of adding Facebook social functions to a Website? Can you recommend any other Facebook plugin that will be beneficial to Web administrators?
